What is a Telesummit?

A telesummit is much like a conference or seminar in which many authors, speakers and experts come together to share their knowledge. The difference is that it is all conducted on the web or internet.

You can attend from anywhere in the world without leaving your home or office.

No traveling. No waiting in line. No hotel, transportation, or meals costs.

Each presenter will speak for 60 minutes on a specific topic of their expertise. Since all presentations are recorded, you can listen to them live or you can select the option to listen later.

Do I need a telephone?

No, you will listen through your computer speakers. No phone (or long distance) required!

Is a computer the only thing I need?

No, you’ll also need a high-speed Internet connection, and your computer must have audio output in order to hear.

Am I only able to listen? What if I have a question?

No, you can chat with other participants, respond to polls, and ask questions.

Do you offer PDUs?

At the moment, Project Management Telesummits is not a PMI Registered Education Provider, so we can’t provide PDUs. We are working on getting registered, so we can offer PDUs in future Telesummits.

PMI is changing the rules for reporting PDUs. We are recommending to attendees to review PMI eligibility and reporting requirement for PDUs under Category C “Self-Directed Learning”.  Starting March 1st 2011, PMP and PgMP credential holders can earn up to 30 PDUs in Category C “Self-Directed Learning”.

Here are the requirements for this category as stated in this document from PMI:

Earn PDUs for self-directed learning activities which are individualized learning events involving personally conducted research or study.

Learning may include informal activities such as:

  • reading articles, books, or instructional manuals;
  • watching videos, using interactive CD-ROMs, Podcasts or other source material;
  • having formal discussions with colleagues, coworkers, clients or consultants;
  • being coached or mentored by a colleague, coworker or consultant (If you served as a coach or mentor to someone else, report that activity under the Volunteer Category)

Qualifying activities must be relevant to project management, project risk, project scheduling, or program management, meet a specified purpose, and use knowledgeable resources.

PDU Rule:

1 PDU is awarded for every 1 hour spent in a self-directed learning activity listed in this category.

PDU restrictions for the Self-Directed Learning category are as follows:

  • PMP and PgMP credential holders can earn no more than 30 PDUs in the Self-Directed Learning category per cycle
